Godfrey-Smith starts out by providing insight into how he developed a passion for studying cephalopods. He highlighted this interest with a discussion of the evolutionary path. It doesn’t take him long to state what he wants to accomplish in this book:
Inspired by Peter Boxall’s 1001 Books: You Must Read Before You Die, at the beginning of 2018 I decided to create my own list of books to read. What amazed me the most is just by creating this list I gained quite a bit of inspiration and historical insight. That’s something I wasn’t expecting, but made me even more excited to read some of these books.
This list contains both fiction and nonfiction selections I’m interested in reading for one reason or another. Many were recommendations from friends or books that won some kind of award. Some of the books on the list will be books I’ve read in the past, but want to read again to see if I glean anything new from them now that I’m older and hopefully wiser. All of the books are of interest to me. You’ll notice a good deal of psychology, philosophy and science books on the list.
My family has a lot of dreams. Some we’ve realized, such as home ownership, home business, having kids, and homeschooling.

The kids are currently saving up money for a vacation to Germany!

It’s a great way to introduce friends from different social circles, and catch up with…
When it comes to living the military life, if the government says jump, you jump. In the case of many military families jump means relocation, or PCS (permanent change of station, for any non-military readers out there).
Sometimes a PCS move can happen at the least opportune moment, such as during holidays, around important family events, or less desirable weather, such as the middle of winter.
During any of these inopportune moments when a PCS move takes place, there are some ways to reduce the stress of the situation to help you keep your cool and reduce the stress of balancing other events in addition to the details of your PCS move.
Affiliate links included in this post. We’re on the heels of winter and my desire to stay in, curled up in front of the fireplace working on my fiber crafts is kicking in.

I can’t think of a better way to welcome winter than to tell you about a collection of digital resources you’re going to be starry-eyed over.
It’s called the Handmade with Love Super Bundle.
As a fan of creating handmade gifts, this bundle was perfect for me. It has patterns for crafts I already know how to do, such as crocheting. It also includes step by step beginner instructions for those I want to learn; applique for example.
I’m excited to announce that I was proposed to the other day! Yes, I’m married and have been happily married since 2005. No, I’m not getting married to someone else either. So, who proposed to me, and if I’m not getting married, what did I say yes to? I was asked to marry my nephew…
